The students from Japanese course, 102, 201, and 230, sang a Japanese anime song at 2017 Lunar New Year Festival!! This event was hosted by WFU Asian Student Interest Association (A.S.I.A.). The song is called "Sekai ga owaru made wa" which was used in Japanese anime, "SLAM DUNK". We really enjoyed singing all together! We would like to share some awesomeness of our group singing.
